HISTORY

The company's predecessor was a small estate dairy, which had been manufacturing excellent butter for export and dairy produce for the local market since 1925. Specialized cheese manufacturing company was established in 1964. In a couple of years it became one of the leading creameries in Lithuania, with its high quality cheese and butter being well-known outside Lithuanian borders. In 1992, "Rokiskio suris" was one of the first Lithuanian undertakings to become a joint-stock company. In 1994, first foreign investors came and in 1997 foreign capital investments already reached USD 2 million. In 1999, having noticed a continuous development of the company and having assessed its prospects for the future, the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development, jointly with the Bank of Bermuda, invested into "Rokiskio suris" LTL 40 million (EUR 11.5 million). Currently they possess 25.7 and 15.4 per cent of the company's authorized capital respectively.

Every year "Rokiskio suris" undergoes significant renovations and reconstructions, and boldly introduces advanced technologies. The company has been operating equipment manufactured by such well-known firms as "Westfalia Separator", "Tetra Pak", APV, "Alfa Laval", "Tebel", "Damrow", "GEA Niro", "Elecster". The creamery ensures a wasteless technological cycle, providing for full processing of whey and producing edible milk sugar and whey protein concentrate.
